Knit a ChemKnits Logo!

Do you love the new design of ChemKnits as much as I do? Well now you can knit your own ChemKnits logo!

Chart - 49 sts x 10 rows

The Pattern
  • Caston 59 stitches
  • Knit in stockinette for 4 rows (K right side rows, P wrong side rows)
  • Knit 5 stitches, work 49 sts of the first row of the chart, K 5 stitches (The chart is worked from bottom up, right to left on right side rows, left to right on wrong side rows)
  • P 5 sts, work the second row of the chart, P 5 stiches
  • Continue until all 10 rows of the chart have been knit.
  • Knit 4 rows of stockinette. (K right side rows, P wrong side rows)
  • Bind off K wise.

I hope that you like the new design of the site! There are a few other components (such as the Free Patterns by ChemKnits button) that still need to be redone, but I know I like the new look!

Thank you Little Cotton Rabbits for the C and K of the logo.
